Situated on the Cantenac Plateau, overlooking the Garonne River, the terroir of Kirwan displays its uniqueness as the pride of the Margaux appellation.
The richness and personality of a soil created over more than two million years by the accumulation of Pyrenean gravel, together with the climate and the flora, make up the precious DNA of the estate. Over time, mankind has learned to develop and communicate knowledge, discovering ways to innovate so as to better express the originality and authenticity of the Château Kirwan terroir.
The wine’s deep and brilliant ruby red color reflects a nose of black and red berries – cherry, black currant, blueberry, enhanced by aromas of spices, pink peppercorns and vanilla. This vintage has a strikingly tactile quality; it starts out mellow, then offers the taste buds a rich body, with nearly imperceptible tannins and an acidity that perfectly balances out its silky texture. The finale blends hints of perfectly ripened cherry and subtle roasted notes that continue to caress the palate.
